I am happy to say I performed this on Friday the 13th, for a presentation of math and mythology - first time I did it for a very large crowd of university and healthcare professionals - and it SLAYED. It was great - and it was so wonderful to just go on and on with the recital - I felt like singing it - people were *** impressed.... this truly is a work of genius - and I'll be working this in to other presentations whenever I can justify it - because its just soooo good.

hehe, I did also make sure the audience got some pie at the end (rhubarb strawberry, blueberry and apple crumble).....

Kudos to you Vincent!

May I ask a question Dr Spector, feel free to answer via pm

1. How long have you had the effect?
2. Which version ?
3. On doing the initial learning of the method did you just practice the numbers over and over until they become memorised??

Thanks

Hi,

1) 4 weeks - got it before going on vacation, did a few dry runs, then just kept practicing it etc. - it is way easier than you think - took me 2 days of practice to be pretty up to speed - but then spent a few weeks practicing with various people before the big show - by then I could just roll the numbers off - the beauty is if you need to stop and think - it looks even better because you are wracking your memory ;0

2) Stackless (I know many other stacks but I wanted to get this anyway for the fun of it - it works charmingly well - I'm still amazed how Vincent created this book - its so cool)

3) I did not practice the "numbers" but chanted the mantra so to speak - if you got Stackless. I did not memorize the numbers themselves if you know what I mean - the memory work was only for the mantra and knowing the equations.

Its worth it - you might be worried the first time you try - but even when you struggle - I swear it looks more convincing... and if you make one mistake once in a while, doesn't matter once you ramble off 20 numbers in a row..... or more.... coolio

Thank you, I have the mantra as you say in my head still struggling using the pi app occasionally on the odd bugger of a combination but as you say its a great bit of work vincent did creating this !

My physical book should be with mw tomorrow then its off for a trial run with lay people.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Regards

Hey Dr R,

Let us know how it goes - you will be amazed by the reactions.... especially part 2 of the 3..... I find that is good as a stand alone itself pretty much. Heck all 3 phases can stand alone.

The physical book arrived safely today - now the performances can begin well maybe once I can verbally do a page and a half Smile

Here is an additional idea because each page is 6 digits per line instead if recalling the first 3 numbers per line maybe tell the spectator the last 3 digits if that line or even the last 3 of the second line! An extra phase to the first phase 1a

In regards to phase 1, I like to KISS

it's the hors d'oeuvre

I'm gaging up the opening

I'm then making phase 1 look tough and just do the 3 digits

but horses for courses

You should, as in stackless it's not in the first 7.5k digits of Pi

Hi All

Been practising a different way this evening Ive been covering up the page numbers reading out the digits and trying to remember what page I learnt them on - anyway to fuĺly memorise the sequence.

If I am "rusty" on my previously memorized stack, should I buy the Stack Version or The Stackless? If you were starting from scratch, which is the best way to go? Just wondering.

Thanks

I have both an Aronson stack booklet, and then when 2.0 came out, went with the stackless version. I prefer the stackless version because I find it easier to recognize the stackless patterns on the even verse odd pages. Don't want to say more than that, but it's more straightforward in my mind.

I got the stackless version. But, I do use a stack a lot (Atlas Brookings Solution stack).
I've almost worn out my original copy of Pi. Kind of curious if I should have tried the stack version first.
Maybe when I get a replacement I'll get an extra version in stack. Probably end up losing what little of my mind is left lol
